Find all the critical numbers of the function f(x) = x+ln(|cos(x)|) that lie in the interval [pi, 3pi].
Please help, thanks in advance.
Yes, I think both end points, too. Critical points are only used for finding minima and maxima, so assuming you're finding the minimum or maximum over the range to , then you would need to include those points, too.
I suppose it could be that you're finding the minimum or maximum over a different range, and for some reason you're temporarily limiting yourself to finding critical points in the given range. That doesn't make much sense, though.
